My friend and I are from the UK and planning a road trip from New York to LA in July and August of this year.
We plan to fly into JFK on 4th July and fly home from LAX on 11th August.
We plan to spend the 1st 4 days in New York before picking up our hire car from Newark Airport (to avoid the higher young driver rate in NY state).
We plan to spend 5weeks getting from here to LA and this includes spending 4days in Las Vegas. We have come up with an initial plan of our route which includes major cities we would b interested in visiting:
Our budget is as follows:
Flights - $1500 each
Car Hire - $1700 each
Fuel - $550 each
Spending Money - $1700 each
These costs are estimates and we are looking for advise on whether you think this is doable.
Our plan is to stop in Truck Stops and sleep in the car 3 or 4 nights a week, is this advisable?
